The Muslim Health Relief Foundation (MHRF) has launched the first Islam-compliant Community-based Social Health Relief Scheme with N5 Million aimed at helping the Muslim Ummah to live a healthy and productive life.
The launching, which was held at 50, Layi Oyekanmi, Mushin recorded over 100 peoples including health and non-health related professionals and university lecturers among others.
MHRF, located at 33, Aladesuru Street, Off Palm Avenue, Papa Ajao, Mushin Lagos has a projection of reaching the whole nation within the shortest time possible.
“We operate as a faith-based social insurance outlet whereby you contribute a token yearly and enjoy the benefit in case of necessity,” Dr Moshood Daud, one of the medical experts facilitating the scheme, explained.
The Chairman of the occasion, Alhaji Sekoni Tajudeen advised MHRF team to adopt ‘cashless’ policy and train members on various aspects of healthcare for the success of the scheme.
“It is pertinent for MHRF to seriously take into cognisance the issue of accountability for the success of the scheme.
“Judging from experience, an idea like this dies in the hand of inexperienced team members thus it is necessary to use cashless policy.
“Members of the scheme should move from one place to another in order to register interested individuals for the scheme.
“They should be paid based on commission because this will increase their enthusiasm for the successful endeavour,” Tajudeen said.
The Director of MHRF, Dr S.B. Sanni remarked that MHRF organised relief medical care for everybody, Muslim and non-Muslims, who registered to benefit from the scheme.
“We have two packages for the scheme: Special and General packages.
“By this package, enrollees will benefit from care for chronicle diseases like hypertension, diabetes etc.
However, MHRF doesn’t cover care of cancer patient and major surgeries at the moment,” Sanni said.
